Leads exhausted after woman killed by rock thrown from I-35 overpass
Investigators have “exhausted all possible leads” in the investigation of the death of a Waco woman who died after a rock thrown from an Interstate 35 overpass in Temple smashed through the windshield of the car in which she was riding, police said Tuesday.
Keila Flores, 33, was a Waco native who graduated from STARS High School and McLennan Community College was critically injured when someone threw a rock from a railroad overpass on the night of March 9, 2019.
She died the next day at Scott & White Medical Center in Temple.
Flores' boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, was driving the car while her three children, the youngest 6 years old, were sitting in the back.
“This case has been a difficult one,” interim Temple police Chief Tobin said in a press release Tuesday.
“In a case like this where there is still very little information after a long period of time, it’s hard to pinpoint a possible suspect. We’re hoping that someone in the community can come forward with information,” he said.
“We want to do right by this woman who lost her life for her family and her children. Any little detail can be a huge help in solving this case.”
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500 or Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS.
